you are loved

Happy February and yes this is the month of love! I was sitting in Church Sunday morning and my paster shared the verse below and it really hit home so I decided to share. No matter what, you are absolutely loved by your family, friends, coworkers and above all else the Lord.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God;once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10

It is so hard especially during February to remember that you are loved and you are so great (each and every one of you).  You are valued and only you are exactly who you are! You were created with your strengths, quirks and love for whatever it is that sets your soul on fire. You were chosen by the Lord. This is huge. Society and ourselves (guilty) label ourselves by our weaknesses or carry this guilt around when we disappoint. But there is always time to wash those away and create new labels for yourself. Labels of love, joy, kindness and just authenticity!

So this month I will be starting a little life series on loving; loving yourself (because you are amazing), others and just loving life. I promise the more you love and find the joy in it the more you will feel loved. It is so easy in this beautiful mess that we call life to get in a funk or zoom right past the little things and the little thoughtful acts. But they are meaningful to you and everyone in your life! Life is too short to not love (& be)!

Next week is Love + Be’s first anniversary (what?!) and so in light of that next Tuesday is a post all about loving yourself and learning to just be! I hope you enjoy!
